I started wearing my girdles after pregnancy starting around 3 weeks postpartum. I order a dual closure size small. I wore it all day , and took it off to sleep at night.
It really helped support my incision, back and abdominal muscle while recovering!
The hospital nurses wrapped my stomach in a compression wrap after my surgery, so I continued that until about week 3 postpartum until my girdle fit.
I gained about 44 lbs during my pregnancy. I had a c-section at 39 weeks, so I’m glad I chose the dual closure as I didn’t know what type of delivery I would have.
I wore my Bellefit almost everyday for 3-4 months. I still wear it on occasion.
The customer support was really great! I called them when I first tried to wear my girdle, as I couldn’t quite close it all the way, and the leg holes were really tight.
The rep verified I had the correct size and then offered to send me and extension closure, which worked really well! My current weight it 137 lbs, and I am 5’7.
I exclusively breastfed, walked daily and ate a normal diet
